Harold Brienes, Collaborative Attorney & Mediator

Fairfield County CT Divorce Attorney and Mediator

Harold Brienes divorce mediator For 27 years Mr. Brienes had been privileged to help hundreds of Connecticut men and women cope with the crisis of divorce and separation. Each one of his clients wants their marriage to end with mutual respect and dignity. Early in his career that was often an unfulfilled hope. Back then divorcing couples had very little choice other than to hire lawyers to fight it out in court. As we all know, divorce too often became mortal combat. The law calls it litigation. Mr. Brienes calls it war. When each spouse feels impelled to hire the biggest junkyard dog in town to attack the other spouse, what better description is there than war?

Harold Brienes was pained to see good people surrender their autonomy to litigious lawyers, whose goal was to grab as many of the goodies from the other lawyer's client as possible. As expensive as divorce was, the cost was more than monetary. It was in surrendering control of one's life to their lawyer and the court system; in the loss of whatever was good in their relationship; in the inevitable choosing-up of sides, the bitterness of broken friendships; in the painful shattering of once-close family bonds; and, most heartbreaking, in the damage inflicted by an uncaring system on their ability to effectively co-parent their children. There are better ways! Divorce Mediation, , marital mediation and collaborative divorce are a better choice if you must end your marriage.
